Hey all, just finished building my b5m lite. This is my first build a I'm super stoked how it came out. Before I go out and put it through its paces is there anything I should know about or look for to break it in? Things to avoid at first?

Just installed my sworkz today modified it a little but looks dope...Getting tired of replacing lexan wings. I know dont crash... Dont worry Ill get of your way

Make sure your ball cups don't bind. Properly break in your ball diff. Check for binding suspension. Otherwise, should be good to go

Thank you guys.
I just got back into the racing scene and got the B5M lite because I wanted to race 17.5 first before I go to mod. The buggy is killer out of the box no doubt. Its super nimble and I can toss it whatever way I want and it just hooks. I had a B4.1 before and I am quicker with the B5M for sure.

Just figure out your gearing and what motor you want to run and your golden. I was looking at all the fancy hop ups for the car but I ran the car stock besides just running my electrics in line. I still am going to get a few things but the car is awesome stock!
